Suzanne Reinhard has spent her entire career serving others in the luxury event and hospitality world. An Atlanta native, she began her culinary and events career in Charleston, South Carolina at Johnson and Wales University. Her talents were evident early and she was hand-picked to be on the opening teams of some of the Southeast’s most celebrated fine dining establishments including Charleston’s Magnolia’s, and Atlanta’s Canoe, South City Kitchen, and The Food Studio. “Creating memorable experiences for guests in restaurants was always my passion”, Suzanne points out. “Creating unique weddings and dramatic, special events was the next logical step to utilize my talents and experiences to serve others.”
In 2008, Suzanne became a co-owner of Magnolia Events and Planning. With a dedication to her clients and a determination to produce the most successful of events, she helped Magnolia grow to become one of the premiere event planning companies in the South. “I had spent my career creating experiences through innovative culinary dishes, boutique wines and exciting environments in the Five Star culinary and hospitality world for years,” says Suzanne. “Weddings were a natural transition from planning evenings for 80 couples in my restaurants to planning one exceptional evening for one very special couple.”
Suzanne Reinhard Events was launched in the fall of 2014 and has already been featured as one of Atlanta’s top event planning companies by “Atlantan Brides” magazine (December 2014). Her clients have included well-known celebrities, national and international politicians, Forbes 500 business leaders and many well-loved Southern families.
Suzanne and her husband are celebrated as one of the Southeast’s event industry “Power Couples”. Kris Reinhard is one of the owners of Bold American Events and Catering and Fifth Group Restaurants. Together, they have three children. Suzanne is quick to point out,” I always love having opportunity to work with Bold American and Fifth Group, but I am blessed to work with many other outstanding event partners on my weddings as well. Understanding my clients’ vision for their unique day assists us in selecting the perfect vendors for their one-of- kind events.”
Suzanne is dedicated to her church and several local community organizations. She enjoys early morning workouts, yoga and dining out at Atlanta’s finest restaurants in her free time.
